Second Trial to Decide if Yankee Rose Golden

David Vandyke was left complexed after the first new season trial of his Group 1 winning filly Yankee Rose who will be set for a second hit-out before plans to run first-up in the 2016 Golden Rose next month are confirmed.

The exciting young daughter of All American was one of the star juveniles last season winning three of her four career starts including the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) on April 2 at Randwick.

The elite level win in Sydney followed her close first-up second behind the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained super colt Capitalist in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

Slipper winner Capitalist kicks off his three-year-old campaign this Saturday at Randwick up against a small field of older rivals in the weight-for-age Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m).

From there he heads to Rosehill Gardens on September 10 for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), a three-years-old Sydney Spring Racing Carnival classic he pays $4.40 to win in all-in betting at

Yankee Rose occupies the second line of early Golden Rose Stakes odds at $6 where, if successful, she’ll be the first filly to beat home the boys since Forensics (2008) prepared by Capitalist’s co-trainer Peter Snowden.

Snowden also trained subsequent Golden Rose winners Denman (2009) and Epaulette (2012) but chases his first with Capitalist in 2016 since joining in a training partnership with son Paul.

Vandyke, who is yet to take out a Golden Rose Stakes trophy, meanwhile isn’t 100% confident Yankee Rose is on track for a first-up bid in the Group 1 after her so-so Sunshine Coast trial in Queensland on Tuesday morning.

Instructions were not to push the filly too hard, but he is still unsure her last place effort has her where she needs to be.

“The jury’s out at the moment in terms of how she has come back,” Vandyke told Racing Victoria.

“We didn’t learn much today but it wasn’t what we wanted to do either.

“I was actually a little nervous going in to the trial because I didn’t want her to do too much and I knew [stablemate] Shamfrancisco would go quick and that may make her do more than I wanted.”

He will use another trial in a fortnight’s time to determine whether the Golden Rose Stakes remains the filly’s first spring target ahead of an October 1 run at Randwick in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on Epsom Handicap Day.

“The next trial is when we will more of an idea of how she has come back this campaign,” Vandyke said.

“The plan is to go to Sydney but the next trial will decide that.”

All going well, a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival raid calls for Yankee Rose who is being earmarked for a shot at Australasia’s weight-for-age championship in the $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 22.
